So I just finished watching the new Kim possible movie and I would like to give you my thoughts about, Possibly (no pun intended) one of the most controversial dcom of all time.
Before I review the movies I just want to talk about this whole “Sitch” with Kim Possible. First off, I just want to say that Kim Possible was one of favorite shows growing up. I loved the theme song , the characters, and the story. I love this show so much that, I actually own one of the movies.
So when I heard that Kim Possible was coming back I was excited. And then all the excitement when down the drain when I heard that the movie was going to be a Live Action Adaptation. I wasn’t the only one who was disappointed, Many people who grew up with the show were also very angry to know that the new Kim Possible movie was going to be Live Action. Also, Disney channel released a video where the old voice actors Christy Carlson Romano and Will Friedle actually audition for the movie, But Disney trolled us and said they were “too old” and “they should give someone else a try” and they did. They got a girl named Sadie Stanley And a guy named Sean Gimbrone to play Kim and Ron, and of course, people were mad. In July of 2018, The very first picture of Sadie Stanley as Kim Possible was released and People were pissed off, This actually got the attention of Sadie and she replied with this on twitter:
And then we waited.
Now That I saw the movie, What do I think, It was pretty bad. first off, The special effects were horrible, its like Robert Rodriguez did the effects for this movie. I said “That doesn’t look right” alot while watching this movie btw. Also there was way too many unnecessary stunts, For example, there is a scene where Kim pick up pieces of paper on the ground, instead of picking them up normally, she dose a cartwheel to pick them up, Im sorry but no one like a show off. the characters were not the interesting ether, Kim is this perfectionist who turns into a crybaby later in the movie, Ron is more annoying then his cartoon counterpart, Bonnie is this cliche mean, popular girl. The worst character in this movie was Draken , he basically did nothing in the movie beside let shego do all the work while he goes on Instagram and take selfies, (Those thing actually happen with darken”. Shego and the new character Athena were the only character I liked, Shego is Represented nicely and Athena is a very intesting character with a crazy twist that I won’t spoil. The plot was also very weird with twist that were stupid and didn’t make any lick of sense, Its like the director was just changing up the whole Kim Possible story so that it can fit with this generation witch kinda kills the movie. taking a show that aired in 2002 and bring it back and make a modern day version of it is not really a good idea, I just doesn’t work and it changes everything I love about the show. Now its just a thing that kids who are 13 and Disney channel stars love, and honestly, this is kinda sad, Disney Chanel can do better then This tbh.
Overall, I give the Kim Possible Movie a 4/10, Bad Effects, Dumb stunts, Wonky cinematography and a weird plot ruins with content that docent make sense witch the movie for me, But there were 2 decent characters, and a good moral thrown in their to help out. And some of the dialogue was good, specially the hart to heart moments.
